1 Year of Stitches, 2017. > January 2017.

January 20, 2017. Aside from working on my stitches, I work with history. History is complicated, it's full of conflicts and difficult truths. But, as our now former president reminded us a couple of months ago, history is known to zig and zag. And for all the conflict throughout history there is also peace. I have a lot of thoughts today, but unfortunately no answers. I just have a promise: that for the next 4 years I will put my energy toward building as many bridges as I can. So today it felt appropriate to stitch one of my favorite stitches, the chain stitch. The stitches link together to form endless possibilities. And that's what I hope for right now. #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #backstitch #frenchknots #white #satinstitch #doodle #threaddoodle #chainstitch #bridges #hope #texture #fabricfriday #friday #fridaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
